Receivers of the Eternal Drone
AAS participatory installation of a Receivers Temple

13th February - 2nd March 2012

ARTicle's space will be taken over as a temporary headquarters for a group of Receivers of the Eternal Drone.

The Eternal Drone is the infinitely slow sound of the universe, born in the Big Bang with space and time, which it binds together. The Eternal Drone is the ground from which all other sound arises.

Receivers like us gather together to experience The Eternal Drone and take collective action, creating new rituals and making the changes it inspires in us.

We often take part in audio ceremonies to prepare us, then parade around drumming and chanting, getting into a trance state so we can open our Third Ear and be ready to receive.

We will prepare the space to create a suitable environment for this, and others are invited to bring along books, magazines, posters, music and anything else that will help to build the community and encourage discussion.

The things we do there will be influenced by participants, who will spread the word to others in turn. It will be used in an active way, where students and others can come along to join in activities and suggest new ones.

Some potential ideas: Videos screenings; Debates; Consciousness Raising; Group Therapy; Guided Meditation; Marches; Collective Music Making

Throughout history, Receivers, like you, have often gathered together to parade around drumming and chanting, getting into a trance state so they can hear The Eternal Drone.

The Eternal Drone is the infinitely slow sound of the universe, born in the Big Bang with space and time, which it binds together. The Eternal Drone is the ground from which all other sound arises.
The band Samekhmem create audio rituals that prepare people to be able to receive The Eternal Drone. Their performances often draw Receivers together, but people with a particularly developed 'Third Ear' are sometimes able to have a spontaneous gnosis of The Eternal Drone, and only later seek out others like them.
